The tribal government of California and some tribes there has signed or has agreed to certain compacts. These compacts are meant to provide sharing of money in form of revenue with other Indian and non-gaming tribes. The revenues so collected by tribal government are invested in general welfare of tribal people like building houses for them, education, health and hygiene, water and food facilities etc. The IGRA or Indian Gaming Regulation Act plays an important role in this area. For it is meant to monitor manner in which revenues obtained from gaming industry’s profits, are spent by tribal governments. The gaming industry is acknowledged as most flourishing Indian economic enterprise available to Native Americans. The consequences trickle down further as nearly 2.7 billion dollar proceeds were utilized in paying federal taxes, 1.8 million is for state income taxes and 2.8 billion is handed over to social security. Not just this but revenue has also helped tremendously in creating new jobs and so settling employment for unemployed. Thus surrounding communities and their small economies are also largely benefited by this industry. However, there always remains a threat of Native American people especially youngsters falling in trap of several abuses like drug abuse, alcohol and like. To alleviate this menace tribal governments and also media have arranged several programs that educate Native as well as non-Native Americans of perils of gambling addiction. The gaming is profoundly embedded in life of Native Americans. Its maintenance and continuance helps younger generations in knowing tastes and richness of older ones. The gaming is so well nurtured and kindled by Native Americans like a mother cares and encourages her child throughout her life.
